  1. Oh how I struggle with this, and my Father knows just how I need this reminder today.

    What truths He uses us to speak-aloud when we’ve lived the nasty self-doubt, traveling a road to His unconditional grace and love.

    Rich blessings, Adelle, as you trust in your Father…

  2. I wrote something like this today, too. I guess I needed to hear this message twice! Thank you for writing it!

  3. I had such a self-defeating day yesterday. Waking up and reading this post… oh wow… God is so faithful and so good! Being reminded of the I AM spoke volumes to my heart. Thank you for this post! Blessings on you girl!

  4. good, straight forward honest post…anyone reading would have to lie to not admit that is them. thank God for His word that brings us out of that stinky place the enemy wants us to stay in. You can toe to toe with the enemy with those two powerful words the Lord gave us , I AM….now go away devil…go away for I AM love by the I AM.

  5. I love your writing. It reads like a poem, but with a refreshing genuineness.

  6. Thank you for all the comment-love! It is SO good to know that I’m not the only one who feels this way, falling down (and getting back up again) on a daily basis. Sometimes, hourly! Blessings to you all…

  7. Adelle —

    Wow — I’d say “get out of my head” but it feels so good to know you know how I feel! And yes, daily, hourly, sometimes minutely (is that a word?!?)

    At the weekly group I attend, the other women are always telling me, “Cheri, you are SO HARD ON YOURSELF.” When they point it out, I can see it. On my own, it just feels so normal to make agreements with the devil’s suggestions…especially when the dust is accumulating on the cover of my Bible!

    I’m old enough to be a fan of Bryan Duncan. The music style in this song isn’t normally my favorite, but I LOVE “Yes I Will” . . . even the discord and chaos of the music mimic what goes on in my head! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moAMzsvRRxY

    Thank you for sharing your heart!

  8. Absolutely true and so well written. I love how I almost always feel you are writing directly to me–like you just peeked into my life and wanted to encourage ME. Your gift of being able to put all our thoughts; struggles, fears, simple pleasures, love of family and love and faithfulness of our Father, is a true gift to to me.

  9. Posted this on my Facebook page so that my friends can benefit from the truth of your message. Well done, dear one!

  10. You must have read my mind! I say those very words to myself over and over again – Not good enough, not talented, etc.

    I take time daily to talk with God and try to hear Him in the midst of all the hustle, bustle and lies the enemy throws my way!

    Thanks for an encouraging post!

  11. Oh wow! I thought the “you stink” voice was only in MY head. Thank you for this wonderful post today! (And you’ve got really cute hair, BTW.)
